I don’t know if it’s because I am old or because girls today have it sucky, but there are no decent famous boys to have crushes on. Back in the day we had Michael Jackson and Matt Dillon and Jordan Catalano from My So Called Life!
I’m even trying to think of who young gay girls can crush on and I guess they have slim pickins’ too.
I asked all the ladies in the Gloss and Mommyish office who they had crushes on when they were teens.
Koa Beck: David Bowie in Labyrinth¬†
Me too me too me too!
I didn’t have a crush on anyone famous because I was too alternative but I had crushes on guys from local punk bands who played the drums.
Joanna: ¬†Adam Brody¬†
Sam Escobar: Leonardo Dicaprio¬†
Carrie Murphy: Prince William¬†
Julia “Unexplained Downstairs Action”¬†Sonenshein said she had a crush on:¬†
also any man who would pay attention to me, so REALLY my high shcool history teacher¬†we played risk with him and another teacher¬†it was erotic I¬†think it paved the way for my history game-based sexual fantasies
which is why you NEVER ask Julia the simple question “what celeb did you have a teen crush on?”
She then sent me this gif.
I would also like to add Prince and Adam Ant and any other effeminate fancy dude to my list.
So who did you swoon over as a teen and who are your girls swooning over now? Go go go!
